NEW ALBUM - COMING SPRING 2024
MADE OF SIN
Music has been at the heart of this dynamic kinship since the duo met over a decade ago. It's no surprise that their songs are timeless and incomparable. Burnstick's signature sound is driven by Jason's proficient playing of 100-year-old Weissenborn lap slide guitars, resonating intently with Nadia's rich and striking vocals. Together, Burnstick pushes the boundaries of contemporary folk music. It's hard to deny the magic they create as they command the stage with their palpable performances and harmony-laced songs. In 2019, Nadia Burnstick, francophone-Métis, and Jason Burnstick, Plains-Cree, released their JUNO-nominated debut album, Kîyânaw (Cree: Us), featuring thunderous singles "Pay No Mind" and CFMA Single of the Year "Some Kind of Hell". Furthermore, with their unique ability to compose authentic and expressive soundscapes, they have worked on a multitude of award-winning film and television projects throughout the years. A family unified and guided by music, Burnstick has no plans of stopping anytime soon, as they are set to release their sophomore album this upcoming spring.
MADE OF SIN (Spring 2024)
With Made of Sin , Burnstick carves their own path forward in the modern folk-roots realm, with their distinct and resonating Weissenborn lapslide guitar sounds and interlaced vocal harmonies. And while Burnstick has achieved a level of success and multiple awards along the way, Made of Sin's intensely thoughtful and timeless pieces will take Burnstick to a whole new level, unveiling their immense talent.
At the heart of the album is a lyrical quest to find clarity and grace in the muddied waters that surround us. "We are all connected, yet finding a way to understand and support eachother is an ongoing battle. A necessary one." Burnstick— Nadia & Jason Burnstick —took to the recording studio with esteemed musicians Daniel Roy (drums) and Bruce Jacobs (bass), to record a dozen songs, 9 that would eventually become Made of Sin . Rounding out their team are Paul James, masterfully mixing the final songs, and Peter Letros of Wreckhouse, mastering the record.
